Boyden Is Added To List Of Communities Under Watering Restrictions
Date posted - August 7, 2012
Boyden officials say that due to current drought conditions, Lyon Sioux Rural Water is asking that all their customers voluntarily conserve water. The City of Boyden is a customer of Lyon Sioux Rural Water and the Boyden City Council is hereby requesting that all residents of Boyden comply with the voluntarily water conservation request.
Boyden residents are asked to limit any lawn and garden watering, car washing (except in commercial establishments that provide that service), recreational use or any other unnecessary use of water. Any additional measures that can be implemented to cut down daily water needs would be greatly appreciated.
The Splashpad in Boyden will also have the hours reduced in an effort to conserve water usage. They’ll be open from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. effective on Wednesday (August 8, 2012).
If the current dry conditions continue, Boyden officials say further water restrictions may be coming.
Rock Valley has voluntary water restrictions in place as well, plus Sioux Center, Hull, and Rock Rapids have mandatory water restrictions in place.
Sheldon does not have watering restrictions yet, but city officials are asking that you think about only watering when it’s most efficient — not during the heat of the day.
